    Lawrence S. Cunningham's The Catholic Faith: An Introduction Lawrence S. Cunningham's The Catholic Faith: An Introduction is a difficult book to muster up a response to.

His charity, I am convinced, is an effect of his strong Catholic faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Charity towards others is the greatest sign of God's presence in our lives. His charity overflowed into his family. He truly loved his wife, his children and grandchildren. Even when there would be disagreements in the

He was thrilled to take the English crown and leave the strictures and poverty of the Scottish court. James' twenty-nine years of Scottish kingship did little to prepare him for the English monarchy: England and Scotland, rivals for superiority on the island since the first emigration of the Anglo-Saxon races, virtually hated each other.
